Women Attack Brooklyn Motorist After Accident in Brownsville.
Excited women and children attacked a motorist in Brownsville yesterday afternoon after his automobile had knocked down and injured two little girls, 5-year-old Annie Schiffer of 83 Grafton Street and 6-year-old Sarah Heiner of 66 Grafton Street, in Grafton Street near their homes. The police of the Brownsville Station satisfied themselves that Henry J. Dooley of 257 Adelphi Street, Brooklyn, owner and operator of the car, was driving carefully when the accident occurred, and he was not arrested. The children, at play with others, ran in front of the motor. They sustained bruises and slight cuts of the heads and hands.
The accident was witnessed by a throng of women and children, and when Dooley stopped his car and stepped toward the children, a rush was made at him, but in spite of the onslaught he carried both of the injured children to a nearby drug store and called an ambulance surgeon to the scene. Ambulance Surgeon Nichols of St. Mary's Hospital treated them. They were left at their homes. Policemen protected Dooley until he left the neighborhood.
